ARCHANGELSK, March 31. /TASS/. Rosatom is developing mobile subsea power units helpful in development of offshore Arctic fields, Chief Executive Officer of the Russian state-owned corporation Alexei Likhachev told TASS in an interview on Friday.
"There is a range of units of smaller capacity under development to generate electric power - 5-6 MW and 20-30 MW. These are mobile, including subsea power units for development of offshore fields," Likhachev said.
Projects with smaller capacity (up to 100 MW) should be implemented for power supply to Arctic territories, while mobility is their main criterion, Rosatom CEO said.
Likhachev said a floating nuclear power plant is under construction for the time being to go live in 2019 in Pevek, Chukotka Region. Rosatom sets itself a task to export this technology after pilot work in Russia.
"We work diligently for out floating power plant to start operations in 2019 in Pevek, Chukotka. It will provide us with an opportunity to not merely implement such Arctic project in Russia for the first time but also to make it export-focused," Likhachev added.
